Why Your TPMS Light Becomes Illuminated

Tires that are underinflated or not inflated to the manufacturer's recommended pressure level not only decrease your fuel economy, they create unnecessary wear on the tire's tread and might eventually cause the tire to blow out. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System, a horseshoe-shaped light with an exclamation point in the middle, is meant to promote safer driving by alerting you to tire pressure issues.

At Donley Ford Lincoln of Ashland, our sales representatives are happy to point out if the vehicle you are purchasing includes this valuable tire monitoring system. The TPMS light becomes illuminated to tell the driver to stop as soon as possible in order to have a pressure check on a specific tire that is reading low. Underinflated tires cause your tires to wear out prematurely in addition to causing excessive heat buildup.

Stop by our service department as soon as you notice a constantly illuminated TPMS light.
